Look, I've got to post something, I know. So I'll use other people's hard work.

So, this is really really funny.

At Ayn Rand Nude Volleyball Camp, our motto is: objectivism r fun! Here you'll socialize with other marginal, slack-butted misfits as well as pimple-scabbed teenagers using great big words. We'll also study the objectivist theory of volleyball, in which we use rubber spheres to represent balls, thus providing a perceptual framework for meaningless gibberish.

And it ends with the traditional Ayn Rand Costume Ball, in which we dress as our favorite two-dimensional Rand caricature, then pair off to have joyless sexual intercourse.

So is this.

Without the pictures:

Wait, I think I understand now. Da Vinci was...

Shut up!

Why, do you think someone's listening?

No. You had me at Da Vinci.

Look, just hit the link.

And now...

... In more serious stuff, you wonder why I am fed up with the Republican party? That extremely cool guy Taranto sums it up:

"House Speaker Dennis Hastert (R-Ill.) told President Bush yesterday that he is concerned the Federal Bureau of Investigation's (FBI) raid on Rep. William Jefferson's (D-La.) congressional office over the weekend was a direct violation of the Constitution," reports the Hill:

Jefferson is being investigated to see if he influenced legislation in exchange for a number of elaborate, illegal payment schemes, including a single cash payment of $100,000, most of which was discovered in his freezer during a later raid of his home.

Calling the Saturday-night raid an "invasion of the legislative branch," House Majority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) predicted the case would eventually be resolved in the Supreme Court and hinted that Congress would take further action. The majority leader said Hastert would take the lead on the issue because he is the chief constitutional officer in the House. "I am sure there will be a lot more said about this," Boehner said.

National Review's Byron York concedes that the raid "raises serious separation of powers issues" but reports that the Justice Department has taken "extraordinary care . . . to address those issues." First, investigators tried but failed to get Jefferson to turn over the evidence they needed. Then, the raid, according to the warrant authorizing it, was "conducted by special agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation who have had no substantive role in the investigation" in order to prevent any "politically sensitive" information from being disclosed.

In any case, Hastert and Boehner's objections are bound to rub many Republican constitutents the wrong way. After all, the first plank of the Contract With America was a promise to "require all laws that apply to the rest of the country also apply equally to the Congress." Something like this makes it harder to argue that the GOP deserves to maintain its majority.

No kidding. Someone needs to shake up the Republicans. They are as lost as the Democrats on so many issues.


creatism explained nicely and neatly, for all godless commy Darwinists to choke on.

Gee... what does that first link remind me of?

"You feel warm and fuzzy? Check your premises."

Well I'll be. When I posted the first comment, I got a blank screen. It wasn't all that interesting.
